   / Rufus Wainwright  /  I think this song is a humorous response to the hype
  / Gay Messiah       /  of Rufus, where medias promoted him as the new Gay
 / Want Two          /  Messiah that would take over the title after his good
/___________________/  friend Elton John. Note how explicit his lyrics are in
                      the bridge! "I never jumped out of the closet, I was born
                     in the living room" - Rufus Wainwright
